Element Case has made some high-end, high-stylin' protective cases for earlier iPhone models, and now it has one for the iPhone 4: The Vapor.

The picture really says it all, but you should know that according to Element, the Vapor "consists of a solid, CNCd aluminum frame made from aircraft-grade metals lined with a new, shock-absorbent liner material to protect and stylize." It's also designed, like most other cases, to address the iPhone "reception issues" by securely insulating the iPhone 4's frame "with a no-slip grip hold."

The Vapor comes in black, pink, green, blue, and starts at $79.95 and $99.95 (with a full carbon-fiber backplate). You can preorder now and the product ships July 12, but Element is telling customers to allow 2 to 3 weeks for delivery.
